I am here by AlectorFencer I am here by AlectorFencer
Listen to the beautifully composed soundtrack to this painting, done as a gift for me by Fox Amoore ---> [link]

I miss you so much, I wish you were here...

This painting made me think about the emotions that we feel when someone we love passes away. They will stay in our memories and heart forever. Even if we mourn about the loss, the beauty of memory will soon brighten our mind.

I got very inspired by "The Fountain" soundtrack by Clint Mansell so that I listened to it throughoutly.

20x40 cm on watercolour paper.
The original can be seen on MMC and maybe EF. Thanks a lot for looking. <3

That's great. But when I saw it first on the thumbnail I missed the tears and ghost/memory look of the tigress, which gave me a totally different interpretation that send me laughing on the floor :)

This is probably the most emotional piece I've ever come across on deviantART, probably on the net overall. And I've recently came back to it because I've been writing about the separation of khajiit brothers and this one piece sums it all up. Easily something I would hang on a wall in my home. Thanks for this touching work!

celticsister Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
So very powerful.  Brought me right back to the day my husband passed away...  yes, the "beauty of memory" of him DOES brighten my mind so gently, just like he was in this life.  Thank you.  I love your work!
coolgeeks Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2013
This is beautiful! This brought tears to my eyes because it reminded me of someone who had passes away very recently, but her memories will stay with me forever. Really Sad

The emotion in this piece... beautiful!

This is without a doubt one of my favorite images I've ever found on dA. I can't even fully describe all the emotions it evokes. It perfectly captures the feelings of loss as well as the comfort of memories. In fact this piece resonated so much with me that I had it tattooed on my left forearm in memory of lost friends and loved ones. And a funny/kismet-ish side note, I didn't notice your comment below saying that you were inspired by 'The Fountain' score until I was getting ready to have it put on my arm. That is one of my favorite scores too. :-)

Dirt-27 Featured By Owner May 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Absolutely beautiful. I can tell that you put a lot of time and effort into this piece, and it's very meaningful and emotional.
I love how the picture would've been much darker (both literally and figuratively) if it wasn't for the ghost there, trying to comfort her loved one.

Wonderful job; this is a perfect example of what art should be. :heart:
